Three senior military figures, including the IDF's first Druze Brigade commander, Colonel Ghassan Alian, were featured as targets in the twitter account of Mashragh news, a semi-official Iranian state news service.

The commanders were shown in the cross-hairs of a firearm, such as a sniper rifle, beside text that read in Hebrew, "Jihad: to be continued."

This ominous post comes in light of a flare-up on the Lebanese border in which 2 Israeli soldiers were killed when their convoy was targeted by multiple anti-tank missiles fired by Hezbollah.

In a similar twitter post, the sons of Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu were also shows in a similar fashion, suggested that they too are possible targets for the Shia Iranian proxy.
